My short Cape Cod horror story I Row has been accepted by Gypsum Sound Tales for their Thuggish Itch: By the Seaside anthology. It’s a story about trying to escape from the past by any means necessary, no matter how many tries it takes.
My dystopian political story Unarmed has been published by Metastellar. It’s a story about a citizen fighting back against a cult-like authoritarian leader who is driving the country toward another Civil War. I wrote it in mid-2020, before the last election, and before the Jan 6th insurrection. It’s scary and sad how prescient it has ended up being. Hopefully life will stop imitating art before we’re this far gone. It’s available to read for free here.
The first installment of my cyberpunk thriller Override has been published in Dark Matter Magazine, Issue 007. Override is a three-part serial novella that will be released over the next three issues of Dark Matter, with the next installments coming in March and May 2022.

- “Me, a Hero” accepted by Aurelia Leo
- “Dragonsbreath” accepted into the From the Ashes anthology
- “Close Your Eyes” accepted by Tall Tale TV
- “Unarmed” accepted by Metastellar
- “Up on the Rooftop” published on The NoSleep Podcast
- “Something’s Wrong With Mom” published on the Tales to Terrify podcast
That means I already have 19 stories lined up for publication in 2022, and the year hasn’t even started yet.Continue reading →
